hi – 21apr

Hi. I’d love to chat but I have to be at the library early. I’m working with the kids from the alternative high school to teach them to use the online catalog. They’ll be getting credit for filling out a worksheet about online searching. Then I go sign people up for library cards at the mall. One of the high points about the outreach session from yesterday was getting to meet some of Vermont’s bookmobile drivers [and some of their bookmobiles]. Neat programs, run on shoestrings [one that quoted prices run their entire 13-town route on $40K a year including salaries] doing all sorts of wonderful things. I’ll do a more thorough write-up once this damned holiday week is over.
